Dear Parents,

        We will be having a Christmas party during school on the last day before break. Students will select a secret santa this week and must purchase a gift worth about $5-10. I want them to do a book exchange. Barns’ and Noble has a good selection of books under $10. Every student brings a treat to share and we will play “minute to win it” games at our party. This will be during the last two hours of our day together.

Mrs. Barnett will need several volunteers to help set up the morning of the pig races.  The main need is from 8:30 to 10:00.  Please email her ASAP if you are able to help.

Congratulations to our top 9 sellers for the Frozen Food Fundraiser:
